Description

From fun, moderate single pitches to 15 pitch routes all the way to the summit, this is a great wall. Facing southeast, it's in the shade late in the day.

Jungle Wall has some of the longest 5.10 sport routes in the world, with the shortest approaches. Classics include:

  • Jungle Mountaineering, 5.10a, 4 pitches. The first bolted route established at El Potrero, in 1989. A bit runout by modern standards.
  • Yankee Clipper, 5.10b, 14 pitches, with an optional 15th pitch (5.12a) that goes to the very summit. Most people stop after 13 pitches.
  • Space Boyz, 5.10d, 11 pitches. This El Potrero classic was bolted over the course of 52 weekends. That's dedication!
  • Black Cat Bone, 5.10d, 9 pitches. Lots of varied climbing on this route, with each pitch different than the one before it.

Even doing just the first four or five pitches of these longer routes is a worthwhile adventure.

Since the routes start very close to the road, many climbers hang their packs from the first or second bolts of the route to keep them safe, especially on weekends.

Getting There

It's the big wall immediately behind the picnic pavilion on the right side of the canyon. Routes start in "the jungle" of relatively verdant growth at ground level.

Be very careful not to climb under parties on this wall. Very loose big blocks on multiple ledges and some massive things fall off of this wall. Jan 28, 2017
